Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's company will use inclusion riders on future projects

Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

The term reached wide public consciousness earlier this month at the 90th Academy Awards, when best-actress victor Frances McDormand noted it in her acceptance speech.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have agreed that inclusion riders will be a part of all their future Pearl Street production deals.

Cox DiGiovanni had previously helped to create the inclusion rider clause recently popularised by Frances McDormand at the Oscars.

Michael B. Jordan announced on March 7 that he would add the inclusion rider to all projects produced by his company, Outlier Society Productions.

The Twitter post by Cox DiGiovanni praised Jordan's move.

Google searches for "inclusion rider" spiked in the wake of McDormand's speech and there were thousands of tweets mentioning the term in the 20 minutes after her speech concluded. Onscreen, specifically, the goal is to reach at least 50 percent gender parity, with 40 percent inclusion for people of color, 5 percent L.G.B.T.Q. inclusion, and 20 percent disabled inclusion.

"I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: Inclusion rider", McDormand said, concluding her powerful acceptance speech after winning the best actress Oscar. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties... invite us into your office in a couple of days or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best, and we'll tell you all about them", she announced. She's also on the board of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the think tank housed at the University of Southern California that was, conveniently, founded by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the co-originator of the official inclusion rider.
